High-end watchmaker Tag Heuer showed off its redesigned F1-themed watch at the Basel World watch show recently. The Tag Heuer Formula 1 comes with an orange, red, silver, or black dial in its chronograph version. The standard watch version has a black, red, or white dial. Luminescent numbers let you see the time during night driving, and it's water-resistant to 200 meters for, well, if you go plunging into the ocean during a fast drive along the Cote D'Azur. If you're not into F1 racing, Tag Heuer assures that the watch is also good for mountain biking, surfing, skiing, or the opera. Although it's a beautiful watch, we would prefer an actual performance computer for timing our 0 to 60mph acceleration.
